Sabbatical Presents 23.04.09: SCUM NIGHT III

Thursday 23 April Sabbatical presents our third ‘Scum Night’, bringing together local groups with a common thread of seductive filth and nasty sonics. Previous Scum Night alumni include Kristkrvstoffiston, Pissbolt, Collapsed Toilet Vietnam, Pathetic Human, Odiusembowel, Fuck, The Retarded Girl, Occult Blood, John Butler Fucks Kids and Cult of the Placenta Head. For this occasion we have meticulously selected an exceptional assortment of volume dealers: expansive junk collective The Psychward Cult, lurid noise broker Screwtape, industrial/noise duo Ebola Disco, and grind fiends Super Fun Happy Slide. Hosted by the Old Bar (74-76 Johnston Street Fitzroy Victoria), with doors opening at 8:30pm, action from 9pm, and six bones to get you in.

Sabbatical Presents 16.04.09: JUAREZ

Thursday 16 April Sabbatical presents the launch of our twelfth series release, Revontulet by Juarez (SBB012). Although available since late 2008, until now we have been unable to secure a performance by Jessica Pinney to launch this release as she has been studying in the United Kingdom. This launch show may well be the only opportunity to catch Juarez live for an extended period, as she will again depart overseas soon afterward. Jessica will be joined on this occasion by a range of varied of supports: Dead Boomers (Leith Thomas and Mark Groves), James Rushford and Joe Talia (a new duo with a release forthcoming shortly on Sabbatical), and Aux Assembly (Dimitra Stankovic and Elise Bishop). This show takes place at Gulag Projects, located at 6 Jenkin Street East Brunswick Victoria, and begins at 8pm sharp. Entry is a very reasonable five of your Australian dollars.
